This is a good course that explains the affect corporate politics can have on an individual. This should be a required session for anyone planning to enter the corporate world as its real but it may take an inexperienced person some time to realize the importance of playing the game.

Excellent reminder on the need to manage oneself in situations. Taking the time to reflect on what is going on around you and not just reacting are wise actions.
